earman156 - Darren Harper - Whispers As winter descends at last upon the northern hemisphere, we at Earth Mantra don our soft flannel pajamas, curl up in a big comfortable blanket, fill our cup with piping hot tea, and ease ourselves back in our listening chair for another season of delightful ambience. Our favorite time of year is the cold months, when the winds outside blow fierce from the arctic north, but inside we relax snug and warm, the perfect setting for ambient music. And amid this...

earman155 - Shane Morris and Dan Minoza - The Ritual Space In July of 2010, we were privileged to be part of an intimate electronic music gathering held in Kansas City in the USA. Called the "2010 Kansas City Regional Electro-Music Festival", this event attracted ambient and electronic artists from all around the United States, who met for a few brief days to share music and art, collaboration and camaraderie. Amongst the live performances, demos, and lectures put on by the various...

earman103 - Tange - Steel Waves Tange returns to Earth Mantra with a delicous collection of meditative pieces called "Steel Waves". Gordon Macmillan, the artist behind the Tange project, never ceases to amaze us with his patient approach to the ambient arts. He cites Tangerine Dream as one of his primary influences (hence the name), but to be honest we feel he has a very distinctive voice of his own, with very little of the formulism the Berlin School sometimes engenders. One can hear...

We've mentioned many times how much we enjoy meeting new artists and hearing new music, one of the true benefits of running a netlabel. Likewise, one of the joys of releasing ambient music is that every album is so distinct, with such a unique sound, feel, and musical approach. With "Lordes", we are reminded...

This is a collection of diverse ambient pieces, sometimes reflective and thoughtful, other times gloomy and intense, but always moody and simmering with a barely-restrained energy. Unlike Darrell's more recent work in the digital realm, this album was made with a heavy emphasis on...

earman028 - Different Skies - Strange Lines and Distances On October 18, 2007, the twenty musicians of Different Skies 2007 came back to their rigs on the main stage at Arcosanti (www.arcosanti.org) after a lovely dinner and a few drinks each, sat down, and began to improvise. The concept of live electronic improvisation isn't new by any means; some groups do it regularly, and the 'Ambient Train Wrecks' one can find elsewhere on Earth Mantra are marvelous examples of the genre. But there's a...

earman025 - Tange - CHON CHON = Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Nitrogen, the by-products of fire. So, what does this music signify? What's it all about? The answer's simple: nothing at all! This piece was composed purely to listen to while reading or in a bath (where the artist claims he spends an inordinate length of time). With this music playing it is like having a long soak beside a warm open fire, or like curling up with a good book in a semi-darkened room with just a puddle of light...
